Information for Beginners
We want Aikido to be an open and inclusive sport, so people who are interested in Aikido are always welcome to come along and try a session. This can be any student session (please see the training dates), however, we run sessions specifically for beginners under the Give It A Go scheme at the beginning of each semester. If you have never tried aikido before, or you’ve had many years experience, why not come on down to one of our sessions.
Beginners are always welcome, and due to an enthusiastic club you will soon pick everything up. Bring some comfortable clothes (without sharp parts such as zips which may damage the mats) and a bottle of water if you want to train, or if you just want to watch the first time then that's ok.
The yearly fee for beginners is £45 which includes insurance for the year, a brand new Gi (the clothing we wear during training) with the club logo on and a free session. The standard yearly fee is £20, which is for the insurance and a free session.
